Great stay in Ecomama! Friendly staff, nice simple and clean room, common area was great with some unique takes on comfort from anywhere else in the city. Location a 10 minute walk from the centre (RLD) but easily walked. Will be staying here again on my return to the city!

Really cool hostel with a sweet vibe. Staff were great the whole time we were there. Really cool common room, nice features. The deluxe double room was really nice, looking out onto one of the canals.

Ecomama had an amazing staff. Gave a great run down of the city and the events hosted by the hostel were great! Craig was awesome and his bike tour north of Amsterdam was a great experience. Felt at home and the kitchen was beautiful. looked straight out of a hipster magazine. A super market is down the block so it was accessible to make your own food. Location was great, 10 minute walk from the Red light district. Atmosphere was great! met some cool people from the events

This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It's more of a home feeling and so well decorated and maintained that it stands above the rest when it comes to the hostel. The staff were so friendly and helpful and genuinely love their job. The private room was fantastic and the common areas like the kitchen and lounge area was perfect. It was also in a great location, away from the big crowds but close enough to get around. Thanks Ecomama

Ecomama stands out among all these other hostels because it creates community. Clara, Elrieke, and Patricia are so accommodating made my stay in Amsterdam much easier than it would have been alone. Clara spends he day making sure everyone is taken care of but also having a blast. This is my number one recommendation to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in my life. Amazing. The staff was great. The guests also and I´ve got to know such special people. Very clean and cozy. The beds were really confortable, like hotel beds. The honesty bar is also a great idea. Special thanks to Clara, such an amazing person. Really enjoyed the time she was with us. Hope to visit and meet her again.

Really lovely, lively hostel- the staff are knowledgeable and take people out most nights so it's a great place to meet people. Cafe next door is also a bonus, and rooms were well maintained and nicely presented. Would highly recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful hostel! Staff was extremely friendly, had lots of activities offer, and hostel atmosphere was very cozy. Although it does run on the high end, price wise, considering how expensive Amsterdam is in general, it was definitely worth every penny. Ecomama has the highest of my recommendations!

GREAT hostel. Fantastic environment, helpful staff and awesome people. Probably our favourite hostel after 2 weeks of travelling in Europe. It's secure and very clean. It's not far from the metro station, close to a grocery store and reasonable distance from the canals and downtown core. We had an extremely enjoyable stay and I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone going to Amsterdam.

I found it strange there was no one on reception at night. If someone got in the front door they were into the hostel.

The female room is really girly (nice) and the beds are super comfortable! it's a good hostel with a nice staff (the welcome is very warm and they give you tips about the city). One problem is that the lockers inside the room are not that big (a regular backpack does not fit in them). The showers have a place to change (what it's great, because the pants do not get wet) and they are really hot. I got a little lost to get there from the metro station (the directions could be improved).

This would be a great place to meet people (the people are willing to chat and the environment is conducive to it), but I didn't really click with anyone (perhaps this is my fault for staying in a large tourist city during the week of Easter holiday). On the other hand, they had cool design magazines to read and the full-time live-in staff were pretty cool. Overall, it was a bit pricy but had the potential to be mind blowing.

We really enjoyed staying at the Ecomama Hostel! It's really close to the city center, very very clean and actually the most beautiful hostel, we've ever stayed in (great common room with a nice open kitchen, a big table, sofas and A TENT)... Also there is a nice Café in front of the reception, where you can buy really cheap breakfast, snacks, etc.
